James Taylor - Fibbing About His Viewership, Al Gore’s Credibility Took Another Beating This Week - Forbes
USTREAM tabulates the viewer numbers for Internet broadcasts such as Gore’s. Watts observed that USTREAM would have set a single-day viewership record had Gore actually generated the viewing audience he claimed. As Watts explained, “if USTREAM had a new record day with 16 million views, more than doubling their previous record traffic day of March 11, 2011, don’t you think they would be saying something about it? So far, not a peep.”

Looking more closely at the numbers, Watts analyzed system-wide USTREAM data and demonstrated how viewer numbers anywhere near those claimed by Gore should have created a huge spike in USTREAM system-wide data. Nevertheless, no such spike occurred. In fact, USTREAM data showed unusually low viewer numbers during Gore’s Internet television show.

THE HOCKEY SCHTICK: New paper finds the data do not support the theory of man-made global warming [AGW]
An important paper published today in the European Geosciences Union journal Earth System Dynamics uses polynomial cointegration to find "data for 1880–2007 do not support the anthropogenic interpretation of global warming during this period." The paper demonstrates "there is no relationship between temperature and the anthropogenic [man-made greenhouse gases] anomaly, once the warming effect of solar irradiance is taken into consideration."
Texas Hurricanes Becoming Much Less Common | Real Science
During the 19th century, Texas got hit by hurricanes an average of every two years. Now it is about once every three years. It has been seven years since Texas got hit by a major hurricane.

In 1886, Texas got hit by four hurricanes including two major hurricanes – one of which wiped Indianola off the map with 150+ MPH winds.
